  1. Heh, I forgot this thread existed because I've stayed out of it even thought it is spoiler free. I saw TLJ a couple of weeks ago after the holidays, I went in completely blind...no trailers, no commercials, I knew absolutely zero (by design). This is the best Star Wars film since the original trilogy, bar none. I enjoyed TFA fine, but the level of Ep4 rehash was real, as has been discussed ad nauseam. But this one I enjoyed since I genuinely didn't know which way it was going to go, and some of the story beats surprised me for sure. Rian Johnson did a great job shooting it. I would cut out about 20-30 minutes out of the middle, that is my only knock on it. I am looking forward to spinning the UHD disc on my home 4k projector since the theater I saw it at (which, oddly, was a quite new theater) seemed a little too dark. I don't go to the cinema often these days, so don't know if I just had bad luck or what. You know what gave me a hunch it was going to be any good? The fact that the initial feedback was that the hardcore "fans" hated it. That gave me hope, and my hunch was true.
  2. UHD Deals Thread 2018

    Nice, I passed on the initial deal since these very titles were not included. Don't need all of the trilogy, but picked up Inception, Dark Knight, and Blade Runner! Will give them the business on my projector this weekend...

  4. UHD (4k) Blu-ray Discussion Thread

    Good god, fuck off. Fuck the normalization of that anti-semitic, misogynist bastard while we are at it. #sugartits This makes me want to burn my UHD player.
  5. How nice of you, Dan! I'll take two perhaps, one for me and one for my daughter. Ex Machina and An American Tail!
  6. Oculus Rift - Anyone else paying attention?

    I would be really surprised if you have problems with Elite, games where you are stationary in a cockpit like driving or flying seem to have almost zero discomfort. Can't speak for RE though.
  7. I really, really hope they continue the trend and release a patch for PC as well. I NEED to play this game on on my new 4k projector in HDR!
  8. UHD (4k) Blu-ray Discussion Thread

    Good to hear! I think I will be picking that up along with The Dark Knight in rather short order. Wish there were more quality UHD titles out right now, very few are the kinds of films that I would purchase with the intent of watching more than once.
  9. Bryan Singer is the LEAST surprising one out of almost all of these, I have seen his name come up constantly in various sites/threads for the last ten years. Fuck that guy,
  10. Deus Ex Mankind Divided (PC/PS4/XBone)

    I will definitely check it out, thanks for the recommendation!
  11. Deus Ex Mankind Divided (PC/PS4/XBone)

    Truth. And my admiration for both MM soundtracks parallels my love for the Bear McCreary soundtracks for Battlestar Galactica: the ability to take several strong melodies and spin them in endlessly interesting ways. A feeling of unity across the entire set of tracks without it feeling same-ey at all.
  12. Deus Ex Mankind Divided (PC/PS4/XBone)

    Yeah, this is a totally random post, deal with it. Haven't had time to check this game out at all, I have very little time for games as of late and tons of other stuff I want to play before I get to this. But I randomly remembered it the other day and decided to check out the soundtrack since I've listened to Human Revolution's soundtrack a TON. Mankind Divided OST is just great, great stuff...I hope they keep making these games if for nothing else as it will mean more music out of Michael McCann.
  13. Oculus Rift - Anyone else paying attention?

    How old are your kids again? Superhot is always my top recommendation as long as they are old enough to handle it. No blood or realism of course, but still violence with knives and guns and such. If not, just buy it for yourself!
  14. 4K for life......for now.

    Had a busy weekend so didn't get to use it much, but still have been putting the new projector + screen combo through its paces. One thing I didn't mention earlier is just how much better even standard 1080p content through my DirecTV signal looks. Colors and sharpness are much better but also...and remember, I'm an idiot...I was concerned originally about the max lumens rating being 1500. Then I read that it was quite efficient and actually performed close to the rating which is rare. Well...today I realized my old projector was only 1000 max lumens and probably not nearly as efficient. So the new one looks far more vivid even when I have a bit of light coming in during the day. I am not a smart man.
